    From Principal Lisa Newlyn

    Dear Parents and Families,

    It's not the same around Forest Park Elementary without 440 vibrant 5-11 year olds living life with us.  I hope you're enjoying the start to the summer break! 

    Last week was a whirlwind of great, special events.  In particular, I want to give a shout out to the many many parent volunteers who helped make Field Day a success, and who were honored at our Volunteer Appreciation day event.  Our Parent Volunteers make all the difference!  Please read below a special message from me and Principal for a Day, Delaney Qualls. 

    At our End of Year Assembly on Friday, we officially promoted students to their next grade.  What a proud moment for me, our staff, and your children.  They are ready for adventures and new learning with a new teacher and new friends.  Report cards will be in your mail box in the next few days.  Inside you will find the welcome letter from your child's new teacher.  We are already looking forward to our new groups of students!

    5th graders, we will miss you!  At our Promotion assembly, we celebrated the class of 2025.  I want to give a shout out to families and parents who made such a difference in our life at FPE, who will no longer be with us.  There are many of you who have been with us for six years, too many to list, but who will be missed.  In particular, I want to give a shout out to Suzanne Taylor Adams who led our Foundation for seven years.  Suzanne, your generosity of time and energy was instrumental in raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for our school, and All Hands Raised, an impact that won't be forgotten.  Thank you!! 

    5th graders voted on a legacy gift to the school - a bench for the Outdoor Learning Garden.  Take a look at the sketch below.  It will be a fabulous addition to our school! 

    School's out for Summer!  But, the Principal is still on the job.  Our office will be closing for regular business at the end of the day, 6/22/18, and will reopen 8/13/18 at 8am.  If you need assistance in the interim, please don't hesitate to contact me directly either by phone or email: (503) 916-5399,

    Have a great summer!   

    Lisa Newlyn - Principal
